Is Pride becoming a business opportunity instead of a LGBTQ+ celebration?

Sheffield for years has been a place for the Pride festival to thrive, as well as being known as a constant safe and welcoming place for the LGBTQ+ community.

The month of celebration has become an iconic part of local culture, with Ampersand travel naming the city as the 14th most LGBTQ+ friendly in the country.

However, as Pride has increased in popularity, concerns have been raised by members of its community, that companies are damaging the festival by viewing it more as a potential investment, rather than a celebration.

This video will hear the perspective of an anonymous bi woman, on what Pride
means to hear, as well as discuss some of the issues the event could potentially face in the future.
